Fornatale: Chance to qualify for Belmont live-bank event


There are two events in the Daily Racing Form contest universe on Derby Day. One features a chance to qualify for Belmont’s big live-bankroll contest, and the other a way to start your journey to the Breeders’ Cup Betting Challenge.

The Belmont qualifier takes place on DRFQualify.com. The entry fee is $325 and one package will be on offer. The Belmont contest, which takes place June 10 and June 11, is a brand new event with big money on the line: buy-in costs $10,000 and the purse is guaranteed at $125,000. Saturday’s contest is limited to 38 entries so sign up soon at https://www.drfqualify.com/buy_advanced.aspx.

On BCQualify.com, buy-in is $110 for a Round One event in the ever-popular two-stage qualifying format. Players must finish in the top 10 percent of entries to advance to Round Two on May 28 where up to eight full $10,000 spots to the BCBC will be awarded. The BCBC is the world’s most popular live-bankroll contest where players get a VIP Breeders’ Cup experience and have the chance to win hundreds of thousands.
